Taken in my home studio! I had to keep putting Opal back on the piano bench. It took 25 tries before she decided I was being serious and stayed for the duration. I took probably 20 shots while she was sitting there waiting for permission to get the hell outta there! She flew out that door and will probably never go in that room again! LOL

Excellent DOF. Love the clear crisp focus on the kitty. I might crop out a smidge of the wood table in the foreground. 7

7 - Quite a nice 'traditional' style studio portrait pose.. perhaps a variation in the background, etc.. coloring - something to bring out Opal's lovely green eyes more.

Such a cute face and the picture is excellent! I especially like the vanilla colored, bokehed background. One of my favorites for this challenge.

Absolutely adorable shot. The eyes and face are so beautiful. I love the pose and the expert lighting. The DOF and out of focus background work very well. The catchlights in the eyes are great too.

Yes she is. Very nice DOF and choice of background color. Her eyes are very beautiful in this well lit shot.

A clean and simple portrait wonderfully done. Love the details on the fur everything about Opal in this portrait shot is wonderfully illuminated. Your lighting is excellent. Love the lighting that creates a yellow 'halo' around the head. This adds visual appeal and keeps the eye's attention focused on the cat's face.
